DIGITAL SIGNATURE FOR EDUCATION SECTOR
These days’ educational institutions are seeing value in incorporating technology into their operations so that they can devote their time and efforts in important activities rather than in operational tasks. Most of the students, parents and teachers are becoming tech-savvy and looking forward to a digitized experience when they join a school or college.
To meet the demand for complete digitization, the education sector must integrate e-signatures at both administrative and educational levels. By implementing digital signatures and other technologies, students and parents can undertake activities like accessing student data like loan, repayment information, signing forms and other documents etc.
Processes in education sector that can be digitized:
1. Student application process:
Most of the Education institutes these days provide online application portals. The students can digitally sign their application form and other documents.
2. Transcript Signing:
Students have to request colleges and then get signed and sealed transcripts to be sent to universities. This process takes time and involves costs. Digital signing of transcripts can reduce time and costs. (Digital signatures/ Aadhar signing)
3. Other use cases:
Following documents can be signed electronically:
- Scholarship documents
- Transfer requests
- Financial aid documents
- Progress reports
- Change of course/ major forms
- School leaving certificates
- Any other form or document
Advantages of digital signatures for education sector:
- Streamline the operations and processes:
With electronic signatures, education institutes can reduce paperwork in many areas like student applications, issuance of documents like transfer certificates, report cards etc. This will reduce the time and efforts involved in these processes.
- Interact the way your students want:
Students are highly comfortable with the digital world, and wish to undertake all processes online
